Experience the Magic of Fireflies in Tlaxcala

Live a unique experience available for two months a year, walking among one of the most magical creatures on the planet, the fireflies.

The tour will begin in Mexico City, from where we will go to the Firefly Sanctuary in Tlaxcala. Once at El Encanto de la Luciernaga, we will wait for the night to fall while we recharge our batteries and stretch our legs. Before starting the route, we will know the path to follow and the ecosystem. Once ready, we will start the adventure.

Discover the Enchanting World of Fireflies at El Encanto de la Luciernaga

Covered by the darkness of the night, we will begin our walk along the wooded path with a certified guide. We will visualize organic flashes in the air as a result of the magical combination of light and life that fireflies are. For approximately three hours we will walk among living stars that will fly around us, illuminating the sanctuary.

Once the route is finished, we will go to the transport that will take us back to Mexico City.
